We think learning in P7 is all about having fun and working hard!
In P7 we love being creative in art and drama and spending time with our buddies in P1, helping them learn. Photos are a great way of capturing this. We also LOVE P.E and sports like Volleyball, Gymnastics, Athletics and Basketball and that doesn’t always involve writing things down so we need pictures of what we were doing to show what we know. It’s fun to work with classmates and learn from each other and we think photos tell you that. Seeing photos that Mrs Hunter has taken of us learning is always great because we can discuss what we were doing and remember our learning. We can also put them on our e-portfolio to share our learning journey with others! By Heather, P7.
This is our first blog post for the blogging bootcamp by Abbie and Luke in Gourock Primary P7. In P7, we think that blogging is a good idea because it allows us to share our ideas with others, so they can be inspired by our ideas too. Also, it allows us to reflect on, talk about and share our learning with the world. Blogging helps us become better writers because it is not just our teacher Mrs Hunter that gets to write on it, we write posts too! It is important to think about our sentences, like punctuation we are using and that what we say is public. We also have a homework task every week called ‘P7 Discussion Directors’, where we have to discuss a topic with our parents at home then be prepared to take part in a discussion in school. We have started commenting about this on our blog now too and we think this promotes using the internet in a positive way. Our class blog is also a diary of our journey through learning, we can look back through this in the future, and remember things that we are proud of, for example, our P7 Burns Supper and Athletics competitions. In conclusion, we feel that blogging is great for our learning and encourages us to use the internet for educational things as well as for our leisure! By Abbie and Luke
